MetadataShow full item record
Klaus Poser B56 met his wife, who was studying for her medical degree, through a SAIS classmate. (He would never have met her otherwise.) SAIS was key to his interest in an integrated Europe, which was a major policy issue after World War II. Bologna was abnormally frigid the first year. He worked briefly as the head of an Italian snowshoveling crew that winder because the Italian government needed managers who could read and write. As a German student, he thought the discussions about the war were very civil. He said the local Italians were very friendly.
